Fat Quarter Baby Quilt Book

If all these baby quilts have you excited then the Fat Quarter Baby Quilt Book is going to be the cherry on top! Fat Quarter Baby includes 20 crib-sized quilts (and a bonus table runner) to make for all the little bundles of joy in your life or ones to come. The designs range in style and there’s certain to be something for every quilter.

Many quilters start their quilting journey by making a baby quilt. They’re perfect for beginner quilters to learn on because they’re small, and the patterns are often simple. Celebrating the arrival of a new baby is always a good reason to make a quilt, and if you know a quilter, you might be lucky enough to receive one as a gift.
